2 days agoJapanese superstar Hideki Matsuyama is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Matsuyama heads to Korea on the heels of two swing season starts that produced mixed results. 'Deki missed the cut at the Safeway Open last month, but rebounded for a T16 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to kick off October. The 27-year-old will attempt to improve on the T18 he recorded in his CJ Cup debut last year. Matsuyama is one of golf's premier ball strikers and finished the 2018-19 season ranked third on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee to green. He is unsurprisingly a rock-solid DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 days agoHouston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has hits in all seven of the teams playoff games this season heading into Game 3. Altuve has an excellent track record of postseason success and it is on full display once again this season. The 29-year-old is 10-for-27 (.370) with two home runs and three doubles, four runs scored and five runs batted in. Altuve's resurgent second half of the season has carried into the playoffs and will be a top fantasy option among Astros hitters for Game 3.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros

2 days agoDanny Willet is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Willet has been playing some excellent golf over the last month. He has finished with a T26, T18 and a win at the BMW PGA Championship over his last three events. The Englishman has seemingly figured something out with his game. He finished a solid T23 in last year's CJ Cup and averaged +0.92 strokes gained per round on the field. Willet will look to improve upon that this year and is a solid DFS option.--Taylor GobenSource: PGA Tour

2 days agoAbraham Ancer is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Ancer is making his third start on the PGA Tour this season. He has not impressed so far, missing both cuts in his first two events. Ancer is not excelling in any facet of his game right now. The only thing going for him is the fact that he can catch fire in any given round and possesses explosive scoring ability. Ancer’s poor play, combined with his scoring upside in a no-cut event, makes him a volatile boom-or-bust DFS option.--Taylor GobenSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoCharles Howell III is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. It wasn’t long ago that Howell was a cash-game staple in DFS week after week. Since then, he has been an incredibly erratic boom-or-bust play. Howell has not particularly impressed at Nine Bridges in the two years he has played, finishing T61 and T19. The main part of his game that remains strong is his putter. If Howell can sort out his middling iron play, he could have some success here. His DFS price makes him moderately appealing.--Taylor GobenSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoViktor Hovland is set to make his CJ Cup debut this week. Hovland exploded on to the professional scene earlier this year after an All-American career at Oklahoma State University. The 22-year-old quickly announced his presence on the PGA Tour with four top-25 finishes in five starts to close out the 2018-19 season. The rising star has picked up right where he left off in the fall season, logging a T10 at the Greenbrier and a T11 at the BMW PGA Championship in two September starts. This will be his first crack at a Nine Bridges golf course that is expected to yield low scores due to the mild weather in this week's forecast. Hovland is an elite DFS option that can rack up tons of birdies. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoGary Woodland is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Woodland arrives at Nine Bridges playing his second event this season. He didn’t particularly impress in his first start at the Shriners Open, but he may have had a little rust to shake off early in the year. Woodland’s game sets up nicely at Nine Bridges and he recorded a runner-up in last year's CJ Cup. His excellent ball striking should continue to pay dividends on this layout that can yield low scores. The no-cut format also benefits Woodland for DFS purposes and makes him an intriguing GPP option this week.--Taylor GobenSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoRafael Cabrera Bello is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Cabrera Bello has been on a hot streak on the European Tour since November. He has racked up six top-10 finishes in his last nine starts, including a runner-up finish at Open de Espana most recently. Cabrera Bello is a scoring machine and can pile up birdies in a hurry which fits perfectly on this easy track. The Spaniard also has excellent course history here, averaging +2.60 strokes gained per round in eight rounds played on this Nine Bridges layout. He is an excellent DFS option this week.--Taylor GobenSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoNew York Yankees starter Luis Severino will take the ball in Game 3 against the Astros in Yankee Stadium. Severino tossed four spotless innings in the ALDS and his stuff looked electric. Severino has missed most of the season due to injury and is not expected to pitch deep into the game. The talented starter pitched against the Astros twice in the 2017 playoffs, both games ending in Astros wins. Severino should feel comfortable out of the gate, however, going 10-2 with a 2.74 ERA pitching at home in 2018.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees
Share:
2 days agoHouston Astros starter Gerrit Cole will take his historic run on the mound into Yankee Stadium for Game 3 of the ALCS. Cole set a major league record with 25 strikeouts in the ALDS and has 10-plus strikeouts in 11 straight starts. Cole has not lost since May 22 and is 18-0 during that span. The right-handed hurler has been close to unbeatable, posting 10 or more K's in 24 of his 35 starts, including the playoffs, this season. When Cole is on the mound, it is a must-win situation for the Astros.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: Houston Astros
Share:
2 days agoNew York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will ride the bench to start Game 3 against Gerrit Cole and the Houston Astros. Stanton is 2-for-4 in the series thus far but the Yankees have opted to start Aaron Hicks in his place. It has been a lost season for the slugger but Stanton has come up with some big home runs in the postseason thus far. Even more curious, Stanton is slashing .300/.471/.800 in 10 career at-bats against Cole with one home run and two doubles. Stanton will represent a major threat off the bench in Game 3.--Joey C - RotoBallerSource: New York Yankees
Share:
2 days agoPhil Mickelson is in the field for this week's CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. It will be Mickelson's first start in the Korean-based event. 'Lefty' has struggled mightily over the latter portion of 2019, with his last top-25 finish coming at the Masters in April. The 49-year-old has continued his erratic play recently in two swing season starts that resulted in a missed cut and a T61. With mild weather conditions expected on Jeju Island this week, Nine Bridges' wide fairways and generous scoring might help the legend get back on track. He's a 'boom or bust' DFS option with his current form. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoBrooks Koepka is in the field for this week's CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. Koepka captured last season's CJ Cup with an impressive score of 21-under par. The four-time major champion heads to Jeju Island with just one swing season start under his belt - a missed cut at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open two weeks ago. Koepka's ability often defies conventional indicators such as recent form and statistics. His high price tag comes with lots of volatility, but his unquestioned talent and upside makes him a tantalizing DFS option in the CJ Cup's no-cut format. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 days agoSungjae Im is in the field for the upcoming CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges. A native of Jeju Island, Im will get a chance to attack The Club at Nine Bridges, where he just so happens to be a member. The youngster had a tremendous rookie campaign on the PGA Tour last season, recording seven top-10 finishes in 35 starts. True to form, Im was in action last week on the Korean Tour and won the Genesis Championship. The Korean stands second in the CJ Cup field in DraftKings points scored over his last 24 rounds. He is a tremendous DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 days agoNew York Islanders forward Brock Nelson potted a goal and added a helper as his team defeated the St. Louis Blues by a 3-2 score on Monday. Aside from recording his second multi-point performance of the young season, Nelson also contributed two shots and two hits in 19:20 of ice time in the contest. After establishing a new career high with 53 (25 goals, 28 assists) points last season, the 28-year-old is off to a nice start in 2019-2020 with five points, 10 penalty minutes and 20 shots through his first six games. Nelson has emerged as a legitimate option in deep fantasy leagues and should even be monitored as a potential streamer in shallow formats as well. He'll aim to keep producing when he takes the ice next on Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoNew York Islanders center Mathew Barzal registered a goal and a primary assist in his team's 3-2 overtime defeat of the visiting St. Louis Blues on Monday afternoon. The 22-year-old saved his production for late in the contest in this one - burying the game-tying goal with just 27 seconds remaining and then setting up defenseman Devon Toews with the game-winning goal just 1:13 into the overtime frame. With four points (one goal, three assists) through his first six games, Barzal is out to prove that his sophomore, 62-point season was simply a mirage. The 2017-2018 Calder Trophy winner is one of the most electrifying centers in the game today and will be counted on to provide elite production throughout his third NHL season. He'll look to extend his current point streak to three games when he takes on the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoMinnesota Wild goaltender Alex Stalock picked up his first victory of the season in Monday's 2-0 win over the Ottawa Senators. The 32-year-old stopped all 26 shots he faced in the contest, earning his sixth career NHL shutout. Stalock's sturdy performance comes at an opportune time, as his team had failed to post a win in any of its first four games of the campaign. Backing up a workhorse in fellow Wild netminder Devan Dubnyk, Stalock likely only holds value as a potential streamer in just the deepest of fantasy leagues. However, with Dubnyk off to a rough start (4.56 goals-against average, .862 save percentage), Stalock could be in line for more appearances moving forward. The Minnesota native will carry a sparkling 0.71 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage into his next start.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoBuffalo Sabres left wing Victor Olofsson scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Monday's 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars. The rookie now has five goals on the season, and every tally has come with the man advantage. Olofsson is deserving of ownership in all formats as he has exposure to the Sabres' top line and top power-play unit. Jeff Skinner also scored a goal in the contest while Jack Eichel tallied two assists. The Sabres are playing at a fantastic level heading into Wednesday's game with the Anaheim Ducks.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoBuffalo Sabres goaltender Carter Hutton turned away all 25 shots that came his way during Monday's 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars. The 33-year-old has started the 2019-20 campaign off in stellar fashion, compiling a 4-0-0 record to go along with a 1.74 goals-against average and .931 save percentage. Through the first portion of the season, the Sabres have looked like one of the league's top teams. Hutton's value continues to rise, and he is deserving of ownership in all formats. His next start will likely come on Wednesday against the Anaheim Ducks.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoNew Jersey Devils left wing Taylor Hall scored a goal and added an assist during Monday's 6-4 loss to the Florida Panthers. Hall now has one goal, four assists, and 24 shots on net during his first six games. Despite the modest production so far, Hall will unquestionably return to his elite form. Center Pavel Zacha also scored a goal and chipped in two assists in the contest, but he is irrelevant in fantasy circles. The Devils' next game will come on Thursday against the New York Rangers.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoFlorida Panthers right wing Evgenii Dadonov scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Monday's 6-4 win over the New Jersey Devils. The 30-year-old now has seven points through six games this season. It was a productive day for the Panthers' offense as Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Brett Connolly, Aaron Ekblad, and MacKenzie Weegar all had multi-point games. The Panthers' top-six forwards are all worthy fantasy assets in formats with more than 10 teams. The team will be back in action on Friday night against the Colorado Avalanche.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoBoston Bruins right wing David Pastrnak scored four goals on five shots during a 4-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday afternoon. It was a stellar performance from the 23-year-old Czech, who is now up to six goals on the season. Brad Marchand also tallied two assists in the contest. Each member of the Bruins' top line is an excellent fantasy asset that is worthy of ownership in all formats. The team will be back in action on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
2 days agoDetroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay pulled in five catches (nine targets) for 121 yards in the loss to the Packers on Monday night. Johnson continues to be involved heavily, and with at least eight looks from quarterback Matthew Stafford in each game this season, the 25-year-old has established himself as a top fantasy wideout in 2019. The Lions will face a tough Vikings Defense in Week 7, but Golladay should continue to retain his must-start tag moving forward.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 days agoDetroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown on 13 attempts in the loss to the Packers on Monday. After accumulating at least 20 carries throughout his last two games, Johnson took a step in the wrong direction, and had he not scored, this performance would have been considered another failure. With just three total touchdowns on the year to go along with a subpar 3.3 yards per carry, Johnson's outlook doesn't look favorable against a tough Vikings Defense in Week 7.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 days agoEdmonton Oilers winger James Neal bagged his eighth goal of the season on Monday, netting a power-play marker in a 3-1 loss at Chicago. He's the first player to score six power-play goals in the team's first six games since Dino Ciccarelli in 1986-87. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl picked up the assists on the play. Neal leads the league in goals with eight, which is already one more than he managed for the Flames during the whole of last season. However, Neal's shooting percentage is at a ridiculous 38.1 percent, so it's only a matter of time before the goals dry out, for at least a while.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
2 days agoDetroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford finished with 265 yards on 18-for-32 passing in the loss to the Packers on Monday. The veteran still played relatively well despite failing to throw a touchdown and had it not been for rookie mistakes from tight end T.J. Hockenson, the story would have been different. With Week 6 in the books, things will get tougher for Stafford against a tough Vikings Defense on Sunday.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 days agoChicago Blackhawks left wing Brandon Saad made it two goals in two games on Monday, finishing the scoring with an empty-netter in a 3-1 win over Edmonton. He fired a total of four shots on goal and spent 16:04 on the ice, playing in every situation. Patrick Kane and Alexander Nylander also scored for the Hawks. Saad had a decent year with 23 goals and 47 points in 2018-19, but he was a 50-point guy during his first spell at Chicago. He seems to be finally figuring things out again, as he sits on a three-game point streak and he's currently only behind Kane on the team's scoring list.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
2 days agoChicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford was huge for the team in Monday's tilt against the Edmonton Oilers, saving 27 of 28 shots and helping the team pick up their first win of the season with a 3-1 scoreline. The Crow was only beaten by a late power-play goal by James Neal. The Oilers had scored at least three goals in all five of their previous outings this season. Crawford's fantasy stock has fallen in recent years, with him struggling with injuries and the team being a lot weaker compared to the recent glory days, but he's still a two-time Stanley Cup champion and a quality goalie.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
2 days agoGreen Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham pulled in just two of his five targets for 17 yards during the Monday night win over the Lions. With Marquez Valdes-Scantling (leg) and Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) both missing some time in this one, fantasy managers were hoping for an increase in production. That did not happen. If Davante Adams (toe), Allison, or Valdes-Scantling miss more time moving ahead, look for Graham to see a slight uptick in looks from Aaron Rodgers. However, continue to expect the worst and hope for the best from week-to-week.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) hauled in three catches (seven targets) for 40 yards in the win over the Lions on Monday night. After leading the way in looks from quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the 25-year-old would exit the game prematurely in the second half. He did not return. With Allison's status for Sunday's showdown with the Raiders in question, fantasy managers will want to monitor his progress throughout the week.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
